Meon Hill



The devil threw a stone from here to Cleeve Hill Tumulus, as you may read about on that page.

But due to my impressionable childhood mind voraciously devouring the Reader's Digest 'Strange Stories, Amazing Facts', Meon Hill always reminds me of the story of the witchcraft-related? murder of Charles Walton.

You can read all about it in Adrian Pengelly's White Dragon article here:
(amongst countless other internet sites).

The article also teasingly mentions in passing that "there had long been stories of a ghostly black dog on Meon hill that heralded death to those it appeared to". The detective investigating the case is said to also have seen a black dog on the hill..
